Lambton’s provincial court on the move


Lambton County’s provincial court services is on the move.

And when it makes the move to the Research Park, it will be holding audio and video appearances during the provincial lockdown.

Court cases are one of the many services affected by the shutdown which began Dec.26 in the hopes of reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Officials say the office will be closed to the public until at least Jan. 11 affecting in person services and ticket payments.

Any court cases are proceeding by audio or video links and any in person hearings after the provincial lockdown will be scheduled by the presiding judge.

When the administration does open to the public, it will be in a different location. Court services is moving to the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park on Modeland Road.

The administration was in the Shared services centre at the Bayside Mall in Sarnia however it is now under renovations. In July, the county signed a 20 year lease with the new owners of the mall which included a $3.8 million renovation of the building.

It’s not clear how long court services will be at the research park.
